Area information

Chichester is the only city in West Sussex and is one of the most desirable places to live in England. Property styles range from modern city apartments and quaint terraced cottages to imposing four-storey townhouses and sprawling country estates.

With average house prices in Chichester almost double the national average, city centre living comes at a price. However, the outskirts of the city and surrounding villages offer more affordable options in the beautiful setting of the South Downs and along the stunning coastline.

Affordable village living near Chichester

Within easy reach of Chichester are many popular villages such as Singleton, East Dean, Charlton, Lavant, East Marden, Compton, Walderton and Chilgrove nestling in the Downs to the north, with East and West Ashling, Funtington, Fishbourne and Hambrook to the west and Tangmere, Oving and Boxgrove to the east.

Surrounding Chichester Harbour are several sailing and seaside towns and villages including Bosham, East and West Wittering, Sidlesham, Bracklesham Bay, Selsey and Bognor Regis.

Chichester is a great place for families, with lots to do and excellent performing schools and the prestigious University of Chichester.

All the staff in the Arundel office were very professional, friendly and easily contactable.

Amazing Service

We are now well and truly settled into our new home and I wanted to thank Sim Williams for all you did to manage a speedy sale of our home. You said it wouldn't take long and with three offers within 36 hours we couldn't have asked for more. Having not been through the buying/selling process for 33 years we were immensely grateful to Mike and Mel for all their support, answering questions and following things through. The regular contacts and updates were extremely welcome and was something we hadn't expected.
